Two years ago, the amazing girls in Troop 607 decided to go to Yellowstone National Park. To ensure every girl in the troop could attend, each girl had to sell 292 packages of Girl Scout Cookies, 5,500 packages. The girls surpassed this goal by 2,000 packages!

19 girls and 11 adults made the trip for four days and three nights. They stayed just steps away from Old Faithful and Mammoth Hot Springs. The girls hiked and saw geysers, gorgeous hot spring pools, buffalo, bears, elk, and more.

The best part is there were no televisions, phones, very limited cellular service, or WIFI!
